Last night was one of those nights were all I craved for was comfort, including food. And what did I prepare? a new version of macaroni and cheese, Baked Mac and Cheese. I found a recipe a long time ago in the internet and last night I finally decided to prepare it and it was superb. If you wish to replicate it, which I strongly recommend, I’ll list the ingredients and directions along with photos. Enjoy!
1 cup of dry macaroni, 2 tablespoons of butter, 2 tablespoons of flour, 1 cup of milk, salt and pepper to taste, 1 cup shredded cheese (you can do 1/2 cheddar, 1/2 mozzarella), 2 minced garlic cloves, 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
Cook pasta until done (8-12 minutes). Melt butter in saucepan over low heat. Add flour, salt, and pepper to melted butter and whisk together, gradually add milk, continuing to whisk, bring to a steady boil, then reduce heat. Sprinkle cheese and keep stirring until cheese melts and sauce is very thick. Add macaroni and stir to coat. Transfer to a casserole dish. Sprinkle breadcrumbs on top and bake at 400 degrees fahrenheit for 20 minutes or until top is golden brown.
